Amazing building and impressive inside but difficult to see many books without being a member of the library. Accesible without paying and it is lovely and quiet in study and reading rooms.

Fabulous architecture with black glass in a distinctive shape with a water view. Inside you will be impressed with the view from the "bridge" on the top floor. Gift shop and restaurant complete this lovely library.

Architectural gem. The Black Diamond is actually a modern extension grafted onto the Royal Danish Library. Great view over the river with a good cafe.
